I got married @ the SS lighthouse; you would be amazed at how many replicas, paintings, pictures, etc. . .exist of that lighthouse. i think my m-i-l has found them all.

we have a place in the panhandle, but only because its a 1 hour drive. its nice, but i don't find it to be as enjoyable as the atlantic coast; but that's a 2hr + drive for me.

Overall ATL has more to see, but Savannah is more charming, and is on the ocean. (Tybee) Depends what you're into!

Tybee is not my favorite beach, but for me it is the icing on Savannah's cake because of it's proximity to the city. I adore that area.

Gotta love the peanut. However, I have to agree with my sister that in the category of Oversized Displays of State Agricultural Products, the Big Hemorroidal Peach on I-85 in SC takes the prize.
